MD Dems Statement on Restraining Order Against Larry Hogan’s Termination of Pandemic Unemployment Benefits

Jul 03, 2021

Maryland Democratic Party spokesperson Zachary Hudson released the following statement on the court-ordered halt of Governor Hogan’s termination of pandemic unemployment benefits:

“This is a big win for Maryland working families whose lives were about to get a lot harder because of Governor Hogan. Larry Hogan’s decision to prematurely cut off pandemic unemployment assistance while many Marylanders are still struggling to find work and child care was cruel, unnecessary, and blatantly political. It’s unfortunate Larry Hogan doesn’t seem to care how many people in our state he hurts just to advance his own political career. Thankfully, today’s decision means struggling Marylanders will for now continue to receive the relief they need in spite of the Governor’s efforts”
